Grocery Store Co-op

Security-First Partnership Protects Customer Data for a Fast-Growing Grocery Store Co-op

“The network segmentation capability within the FortiGate firewalls is a major advantage. The Fortinet solution enables us to separate the devices that require internet access from the applications and databases that use customers’ personal information.”

– Grocery Co-op CIO


A grocery co-op—which provides back-office services to hundreds of member stores—wanted to simplify the way it protected its customer data and other critical networked assets. Managed service provider, Vandis Inc., worked with the co-op to deploy a consolidated Fortinet Security Fabric solution, which replaced multiple legacy security systems at the corporate office and protected the in-store networks as well. The new solution, which Vandis manages via the Fortinet Fabric Management Center, has significantly reduced the number of service tickets the co-op receives and has improved response times.
